Boston slugger David Ortiz was reminded why some players wear cups when he warmed up with a young Red Sox fan before taking the field for Game 4 of the ALDS against Tampa Bay.

TBS cameras caught the Boston slugger tossing balls to a young toddler just outside the on-deck circle. But the kid hit a line drive and appeared to hit Big Papi in the groin, bringing him down to his knees.
